Casa Perola was built in 2006 to a high spec and is situated in Odelouca just outside the lovely town of Silves. We also have a Tourist Licence which complies with all health and safety rules. THe Villa is built into a hillside overlooking the picturesque valley of Odelouca with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside with its orange groves and the Monchique Mountains. Odelouca is a conservation area and is ideal for bird watchers and walkers. It's an ideal location for peace and quiet and total relaxation enjoying the Portuguese way of life in this lovely valley. The Valley boasts of a local baker who is just a short walk from the villa and a rustic bar about a 15-20 minute walk away with a restaurant serving local Portugese food for lunches. You'll often see jeep safaris going through the valley. Supermarkets, cinema, shops and restaurants are only a 10-15 minute drive away.

About yvonne bakers
I live with my husband and two grown up daughters in a small market town in Essex. We live not far from the Roman town of Colchester with its castle and also a big Army Garrison.
yvonne bakers purchased this Villa in 2003
Why yvonne bakers chose Odelouca
We originally bought a piece of land and had Casa Perola built to our own specifications in 2005. When we first viewed the land it was so lovely looking over the valley at the wonderful views we just sat there and closed our eyes and enjoyed the quietness of it all and that is what decided us to buy and build. We had to take down the old building but we did renovate the Old outside Kitchen and bread oven, now used as storage. Because we are on a hillside the pool had to be built into the side of it and so is level with the top floor and has lovely views of the Monchique mountains. Although we are rural in location we liked the fact you can get anywhere in about 20-25 minutes. We only started to rent out in 2008 and so far all our guests have enjoyed the location.
What makes this Villa unique
Being only a short drive from the beaches is lovely for a early morning walk. Ideal for bird watchers and walkers. A really away from it all holiday or if you want a bit of the bright lights there is Portimeao, Lagos, Carveiro, Silves which are only a short drive away and then back to the tranquility of the villa. In fact the best of both worlds.

Everything was perfect!
Helpful owner, fantastic villa, weather was lovely - couldn't fault anything.
Thank you so much for the 5 star rating and very pleased you enjoyed your stay so much lovely to have you as guests in our home from Home and you will be very much be welcomed back in the future.
Spacious, well equipped in peaceful location
Lovely spacious rooms, spotlessly clean. The air conditioning was fantastic as very hot during our stay. Well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Pool nice and warm and a great size. Quite remote so car essential. Silves was one of our favourite places to visit as the nearest town with plenty of places to eat shop and we were lucky to be there during the medieval festival week.
Thank you Jackie for your review and the award of five stars, it really means a lot to us to know that our guests have enjoyed their holiday at Casa Perola. We do hope you will be back to see us again.
Beautiful home with excellent facilities. Spacious, well equipped and well laid out.
We had a fantastic stay at Casa Perola. The house had everything we could need for a home from home feel. It was clean, well decorated and all rooms spacious, plenty of cupboard and wardrobe space. Bathrooms clean and spacious, and kitchen well equipped. The washing machine came in handy for us who pack light! There were lovely touches with games dvds books to use. The large swimming pool on the upper terrace was in a gorgeous sun trap so made the refreshing dip all the more welcome. The lower terrace patio area was a nice place to eat outdoors or just sit with a cup of tea and book Peaceful. Some stunning views around the villa. It was remote enough to be peaceful and just the sounds of nature, but easily accessible to all facilities day trips and wonderful beaches in the area. A car is necessary. We managed to get to many local marinas and fishing villages villamoura Portimao Ferragudo and Carvoeiro easily. Also enjoyed the local delights of Silves and a day at the water park was just 30 minutes drive. Nearest Supermarket was a 10 minute drive and provided everything you could need. The local neighbours were friendly, and the added bonus of a bakery serving bread straight from the oven, just a few minutes walk away.
The hosts were exceptional, they assisted and supported us well when we had a bit of a self imposed hiccup and couldn’t do more for us, despite being in the UK. Happy to be contacted even late at night. Can’t thank m enough. Their recommendations of places to visit, local events were spot on. Alvor beach and Carvoeiro were our favourites of their tips.
Would I stay again? Yes in a heartbeat!
Thank you Rita for your glowing report on the villa and you and your lovely family would certainly be welcomed back to the villa in the future. Pleased you liked the area especially the local Padre (bakery), we are very lucky to be situated in a beautiful valley and always pleased to hear that our guests have enjoyed it as well and have found it to be a home from home which is what we have aimed for.
Also so pleased that your little hiccup was sorted with the help of Debby (housekeeper) as well so that you could enjoy the rest of your holiday

Great villa, great area. Fab beaches within easy reach
The villa and pool were just perfect. The owner was really helpful. The beaches, coastal paths and places to eat all scored highly. Would definately recommend. We will be back I am sure.
Thank you for awarding us 5 stars and we are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and you certainly would be most welcome back in the future.
Fantastic holiday, Fantastic property
After using villas for many years, we found the information from the owner was exceptional with respect to the directions and things to do. The villa was secluded with great views over the hills and was equipped to a very high standard. The pool was perfect and very large (we loved the duck thermometer) and lots of space to laze about with ample shade if needed. The beaches were within a 20 minute drive and the Praia Da Rocha beach was particularly spectacular. We would not hesitate to reccomend this villa and would hope to return in the future
Thank you so much for awarding us 5 stars and also the lovely comments. Should you wish to return to the villa in the future for a holiday then you will be most welcome.
